In our programs, we unlock our students’ passion and genius through immersion in a college environment, instruction by top MBA graduates and college students from prestigious universities, and access and exposure at the highest levels to Fortune 500 corporations, major institutions, and leaders of our time. We give all our students a ten-to-twenty year head start, inspiring them to see themselves as Leaders NOW™ who will rise to become the future corporate, entrepreneurial, social entrepreneurial, and civic leaders of America and the world, while inculcating in them the value of giving back NOW. We ignite our students’ passion for learning, prosperity building, and giving back through a new paradigm of self-perception and empowerment. Students in our program come from various socio-economic, ethnic and educational backgrounds and range in age from 10 to 19 which add to ABL’s rich culture of diversity. We are proud of our results: 100% of our students graduate from high school and a remarkable 98% of them go on to pursue post-secondary education at universities across the country.
